The culture ministry has proposed that an underground passage be built for tourists at Qutub Minar.

"The ticketing is on one side while the pedestrian area is on the other side. One has to work out a way where tourists face less traffic hazards," culture minister Chandresh Kumari Katoch said.

The proposal was made on Monday at a meeting of a committee on the upkeep and maintenance of protected monuments in Delhi.

"We have proposed that garbage bins and urinals which are within 100 metres of monuments in Delhi be removed. This will be a part of a pilot project," the minister added.

The National Mission of Monuments, she said, had identified some monuments in Delhi which had heritage value.
